Default S/S Andrea Doria's Destiny - The M/S Stockholm

One of the naval (maritime?) history's more dramatic events. She was ready to sail 1953. In 1956 the tragic accident occured. She now sails under the name Athena. She's for the moment docked at Gothenburg's outer harbours. She'll soon leave for Amsterdam

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Most of the pictures you see of her are black and white

That's amazing, I had no idea the original Stockholm was still afloat. This ship looks completely unlike the one I remember from the pictures and movies that I saw of the incident, however. Nice shots.

Great shot! I had no idea the ship was still around. Looks like they did an extensive refitting of the ship since the collision all those years ago.

toshi43,

JayC,


Thank you. There is detailed information on the ship at this site, also a drawing where the ships collided.

Many mistakes were made. Like Titanic the Andrea Doria was thought of as being unsinkable

Very nice. I'm curious: the b&w looks much more sharp. Amazingly sharp indeed. Why is it?

Don't know. Haven't thought about it, but now that you mention it... A Leica lens on a superzoom camera. Direct bw conversion in Photoshop. Well ...
